Walk along the beach at sunset or visit one of the viewpoints and you are sure to see a couple in wedding attire on a photo shoot. Phuket is a very popular destination for stag parties and hen nights, honeymoons and weddings, and for those couples who wish to renew their vows.
There is nothing we love more than taking a break from our busy schedule and getting a massage. In most western countries massage and other kinds of pampering sessions can be expensive. A treat for a birthday or special occasion perhaps but certainly not a weekly event. But in Thailand they are very affordable, so we like to spoil ourselves as often as we can!
Gibbons are very cute creatures, and years ago the white-handed gibbon was a common sight in the forests of Thailand. These days you’d be lucky to see one in the wild. They’re more commonly seen out in Phuket shopping areas, looking terrified as they cling to their ‘owners’, or in other words touts that parade them around the noisy tourist streets.
Well-known for its fabulous beaches and Phuket cruise views, the island has many other different aspects to it. Here, we are going to tell you a little about some of the activities you can do to get healthy.
Phuket has plenty to occupy you, but think about venturing off the island for a day or two. It can really be worth the effort. Just over the Sarasin Bridge, that joins Phuket to the mainland, is Natai Beach. Still unspoilt due to building restrictions, it’s quiet and there are no crowds or beach chairs to ruin the views. Further up the coastline are even more deserted beaches, each one gorgeous, and it’s very likely you’ll have the whole stretch of sand to yourselves!
Thai culture has been influenced largely by the main religion in the country, Buddhism. Over 90% of Thai’s are Buddhist, and there are temples, the Thais call them “wats”, everywhere.
